However, it is understood that Type 1 diabetes outcomes from an infectious on toxic insult to persons whose immune system is hereditarily liable to develop an aggressive autoimmune response either against distorted pancreatic B antigens (proteins) or against molecules of the B cell resembling a viral protein (known as molecular mimicry). Untreated type 1 diabetes can induce a person to go into a coma. The juvenile diabetic lack the assembly of insulin so, sugar builds up high in the blood, overflows into the urine and exceed from the body unused.
